Publisher's Summary

Since returning from the peninsular wars, Michael Waterstone has learned to live within restricted boundaries and taught himself not to yearn for what he can never have. Fortunately for him, ex-courtesan Angelique Delisle is no respecter of boundaries of any kind, and offers him a provocative Christmas wager that might change his life forever.

giving a sensual aspect to a disabling condition.

I found this title to hit very close to home. my husband is paraplegic. his condition has changed the way we interact sexualy but it has in no way diminished the pleasure we find in each other. only in different ways. I loved when Michael says he never thought he would be so excited with a kiss. that is what we find Soo erotic. The nuances of love making. I am so very glad for others to be exposed to that very erotic aspect in a mainstream romance novel.

unfulfilled potential

Offensively short story for two deserving characters! Actually more of a snapshot than a story even. so disappointed as it had such promise and these two deserve more than a quick aside of a novella 😥

Why so short???

This had so much potential. The structure of an excellent story was set... Why was this a novella??? It left me incredibly disappointed, this could have been better then both of the first 2 in this series. I just really don’t get it. Narration was excellent.

Huh? But who was poisonings her and why?

It should be noted this is just a novella or a short story. It starts with our heroine thinking that someone is poisoning her because her dog threw up. Our Heroine just drops this sexy wager on our Hero. The book does tells us that our Hero can still get it up, but it never resolves the mystery. Was our Heroine being poisoned? Was it the Cook? and Why?

I think book was a cop out to have some additional story written for our Hero, because well, he kind of deserves a story. This could have been so much more! Unless you are reading the whole series or just need a quick story about some sex, I wouldn't bother with this one.

Only 6 chapters????

Sorry the Author just got lazy here, and rushed through a story to get it done. Her first 2 audio books were around 10 hours each. This one was only 1 hour! The last book in the series is only 6 hours. She could have combined the last 2 books and it still would have been only 2/3 of a full book. Very disapointing!

Too short

Not long enough - need full story. Good characters, but not enough plot. want to know more about their journey.

Too short

This was a good story but way too short. There was a lot of things that could be done with this story. I'm sorry that it wasn't made into a full book.. It had a lot of potential.

Short!

A bonk, dogs, poison, a murderous cook and all within 3 chapters. Michael and Angelique deserve much more.

Fab short story

Have loved this series. Agree with others, wish it was longer. Have listened more than once. Great author and Julie Is the best narrator I’ve listened to in ages, really enjoy the way she brings these stories to life. Even better these books are free as part of the audible plus catalogue

Much too short

Loved the little of it there was. I wish it would have continued with the capture of the cook and why he tried to poison Angelique. But I'm sure it's all in the next book.
This is the 3rd book of this series and I loved every second of it so far. And the narrator is very good. I normally prefer male narrators if they can do a female voice properly, but Julie Maisey is very good. Now on to the next one.

what a beautiful story

wish it was a bigger story. Two beautiful characters came together and there really isn't enough unique perspective like this available much
